Dolomites ice climbing / Daniel Ladurner and Hannes Lemayer swing up Sonnentanz in Langental

di

In Langental / Vallunga Daniel Ladurner and Hannes Lemayer have made the first ascent of Sonnentanz (WI5+ M7+ 260m), a mixed climb above Val Gardena, Dolomites.

Vallunga in the Italian Dolomites once again, and yet another new ice climb by Daniel Ladurner and Hannes Lemayer. While making the first ascent of the instant classic Teufelsgeige a fortnight ago, the South Tyrolean mountaineers noticed a huge drip above a large cave on the south side of the valley , just to the left of Mystera / Illuminati.

On Tuesday 18 December 2018 the duo returned, rucksacks loaded with gear, and swung leads to quickly establish the route all the way up to the Stevia plateau. The new ice climb is called Sonnentanz, sun dance, and is described as being "absolutely superb". Three pitches of water ice are followed by a mixed pitch which, protected with 6 bolts, breaches the grotto. A further two ice pitches lead to the top.

Ladurner told planetmountain.com it is highly likely that the first three pitches were previously ascended by unknown mountaineers, Lemayer himself had already climbed them fifteen years ago.
